Fun fact: I spend more money than I should on tattoos.   

My name is Kenneth Blakey, and I grew up in Florida.  I'm concentrating in mathematics and am specifically interested in Riemannian geometry (the study of smooth manifolds endowed with a Riemannian metric). I initially became interested in Riemannian geometry, and more generally smooth manifold theory, because the word tensor was cool and had a super cool symbol. But after working with it for a while, I love its deep theorems and generalized results. When I'm not studying math I'm either: reading books, playing games on my PC, or working on a car I have (for those interested, a manual 2017 Veloster Turbo R-spec).
